May 1, 2020 (San Francisco, CA) – World Trademark Review has recognized Hanson Bridgett's Intellectual Property Practice Group as one of the best in the nation, stating, "Bay Area stalwart Hanson Bridgett can support brand owners in many meaningful ways thanks to a well-cultivated and well-rounded trademarks service."

The World Trademark Review 1000 is the only standalone publication to recommend attorneys and their firms exclusively in the trademark field, and identifies leading firms in over 80 key jurisdictions globally. WTR 1000 highlights leaders in the respective areas of prosecution and strategy, enforcement and litigation, and anti-counterfeiting.

In addition to Hanson Bridgett's honors in the categories of ”prosecution and strategy" and "enforcement and litigation," attorneys Garner Weng, Raffi Zerounian, and Noel Cook were praised for their achievements and contributions to Hanson Bridgett's IP Practice Group.

WTR 1000 commended Co-chair of Hanson Bridgett's IP Practice Group, Garner Weng, for his "creative, practical and resourceful and a discerning choice if an office action is an uphill climb or a dispute particularly nuanced."

Raffi Zerounian was said to be “'both an excellent prosecution lawyer and litigator.' He recognises that in-house counsel are busier than ever and under increasing pressure, so he distils his advice down to simple and practical steps that advance business objectives. Similarly, [Noel] Cook is a 'pragmatic guy who demonstrates good common sense.' [Noel] has hit the ground running here and is a team player who fits well within the Hanson Bridgett culture. He draws on a deep well of experience in all areas of trademark practice."
